We have decided to go in with 21 players...

In: Zac Clarke, Jake Stringer, Matt Guelfi
Out: Kyle Langford (Omitted), Tom Bellchambers (Injured), Josh Begley (Omitted)

Langford IMO is very very stiff. I would have been dropping Fantasia (who I think is still injured) or Laverde before him.

Clarke is a liability. Dumb selection.

Dropping Langers is crazy. He was in our best last week! 21 disposals, 7 tackles, 6 i50’s and a goal. Certainly more productive than quite a few others.

This madness of dropping him every time someone is due to come back is just stuffing him around. Totally get it if he wasn’t contributing, but he is, and doing a good job.

Disgrace really.

I still am astonished that Langford was dropped. It makes it hard to not turn on our coaches when selection decisions are made like this.

Somehow he has to be a late in.

Thinking Clarke should beat the swans rucks. If he can`t beat them, (Reid, Allir Allir and McCartin) then he shouldn`t be on our list.

Maybe the late out will be the (obviously injured) Fantasia...

Just want to win this match, as Grassy said, we OWE these pricks plenty...

Well said Des!

You’ll have to give me a report on that,as the statement I made has a double meaning this week.

My mob over here OWE THOSE PRICKS in the Red and the Blue massive payback at a Massively Crucial time,having lost about 29 of the past 33 games against them in the past 15 or so years!

Time to shove a glove of Garlic up their f****** arse!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We need to go for the jugular and smash these chicken plucker's. Come on boys, make a statement.

FFS, don't let Clarke try and kick for goal, he couldn't hit the side of barn with a hand full of buckshot.

f*** ... Heppell is a late out ... Langford is in (even the 774 commentators thought his dropping was undeserved).

Geez ... Don't need excuses if we lose.

Heppell being out should be the perfect time for Zaka, Parish and even McGrath to take up the slack.

Also a chance for Langford to silence his critics :)

Dan Richardson on 774...

Heppell has a sore foot which he has been carrying for a while, so decided to rest it this week... :roll: [Fanta has been playing sore for 3 weeks now...]

Langford was dropped because he has been taking on Stringer's role ... and we wanted to get Guelfi in ... and while "solid, he hasn't been playing his best". Sounds like he is saying " Kyle - if you want to walk, go ahead" to me. (hate to say this but Stringer in the center is pretty invisible and he is best value in the forward 50).

Re ZClarke - Great around the club, fits in well with the club culture, trains hard, great athlete... will do well.

Can we get people who can read a game of footy and not cultural warriors?

Or has his confidence been shot by being dropped?

McKernan goes into the ruck and we suddenly kick 2 goals ... What does that say Woosha?

Shiel and McKenna impressive. Gleeson doing good ...

16 Inside 50's for only 2 goals. Time for Hooker to have a stint forward.

Langford only 52% TOG? Must be resting him for the last quarter... :roll:

Life is too long to endure this sort of crap. Awful footy.

Clarke 13 hitouts - only 3 to advantage and 4no now 5 directly to the opposing ruck. Ailir Ailir has the same number of hitouts but 6 to advantage.

Laverde only 2 H/Bs. Why do our players think the only marking options in the forward 50 are Tippa or ZClarke?

Guelfi now kicked twice off the ground directly to an opponent - you do have hands!!! 8 touches and 4 clangers...

Merrett just cleared from concussion.

Oh not the least bit concerned. Langford is AA material and someone even said he might be the next skipper :) :D
